Hi every one. I am new to the forum but have lurked here for a while and I finally have a topic I think is worthy for discussion. I have owned a 07 yz450f for quite a while (about 4 years) and ride it 99% for trails and desert with very little to no track time. I has done a few small mods like regeared, added hand guards and a desert tank and my own lighting system using a 7in led light bar and a Milwaukee 18v 5ah m18 battery, to name a few. fast forward to about a week ago and I decided its time to make my bike a bit more friendly for me as I have had back surgery and a knee surgery in the last 3 years and kick starting a carbed bike wrecks me after a few times, so I am considering buying a wr450f. I was on craigslist and found a 07 wr450f with a grenaded motor that I picked up for $400 as I wanted the 18" wheel and the kick stand and planned to part the rest of the bike out. However the more time I look at it I am amazed at how clean the frame and major components are so I am left in a bit of a quandary. I am considering swapping the motor from my yz into the wr frame and converting it over to the wr trans gears, adding the stator, e-start, and getting my lighting set up. I Also plan on putting the yz forks and rear shock on it. Downside is A) its a lot of work. b. I will have to split the cases and figure out how to install gears and the stator. but I would essentially have a true yz/wr hybrid with the best of both and a true green sticker bike..... what would you all do? am I crazy.... sell them both and buy a ktm? lol
Main question I want to know is if a Daytona anime 150/190 head can be put on a yx160 bottom end without major modifications? I have a 2v head so I know I would need a new piston to match the 4v heads of the Daytona anime and i can make custom gaskets and most likely might need to change cam chain. Just want to know if anyone has tried to do this? Or is it not possible? Would love input
I’m building a bike that I wish Honda would have done. The bike is a CRF450 chassis with a 400ex engine. Basically an XR400 with electric start. My question is, “How much oil does this motor pump out, up to the frame, in a given minute?” Short of just pulling the line off and starting the bike and watching to see how fast it can fill a quart bottle. Does anyone know? Reason for asking this question is because I’m building oil tanks in place of the wet frame that was found on the XR400 bikes. With the two tanks that I’m placing on the CRF450 frame in place of the radiators; I need to do a cross over from one tank to the other. I would like to run the bike with both tanks more or less full, in order to take advantage of the most cooling I can get. I just don’t want to starve the engine for oil waiting for one tank to fill up to a high cross over. On the other hand I don’t want a low cross over and lose out on the cooling ability of the tanks if they’re going to be mostly empty while the bike is running. Does anyone have a realistic idea on how to get a cross flow effect without taking forever to get oil to the return line? A few videos can be found of it on YouTube under “XR400AF” if you care to watch them and give me any ideas for oil line/tank. Thanks in advance for any help.
